I read a lot usually over 200 books in a year. I usually read Fantasy. The past couple
of years I have been on a big time Urban Fantasy kick. It started when I read Jim Butcher's
Harry Dresden books and then Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series.
I have been all consumed with Urban Fantasy ever since.
Some of my favorite authors, besides the above-mentioned, are Kat Richardson,
Cherie Priest and Patrick Rothfuss (he writes high fantasy not urban fantasy).

I have been fortunate enough to meet some of my favorite authors in person:
Contemporary tabletop gaming has far outstripped what was available
in the past. Games like Risk, Monopoly and Candyland have been replaced
by games like Small World, Ascension and Munchkin. In the last 5 years
I have whole heartedly embraced tabletop gaming. If you are lucky enough
to have a local game store in your area I highly recommend going in and
talking to the proprietor. Games today are designed to ignite your
imagination and keep you coming back for more.
My collection on boardgamegeek.com has a small sampling of the games I own. (link will open in a new window)
Since the Atari 7800 I have been a pretty big video gamer. I mostly
gravitate towards role-playing and adventure games. This past year I have
Played a lot of Sid Meier's Civilization V. Currently I am playing a
lot of Minecraft with my husband. I am mostly a PC gamer, however we do
own a Sony Playstation 3 and a Nintendo Wii.
